The World Day of Prayer on 1st September marks the start of the Season of Creation which lasts till 4th October (Feast of St Francis of Assisi). We as Christians everywhere will take this time to celebrate the world’s beauty; to wonder at its complexity; to spend time just being in the natural world. 

During this season we are asked to pray and examine how we as church, as a local community and as individuals can deepen our relation with God through our relationship with all Creation; and to ask how we fulfil our responsibility to renew God’s Creation as a “Home for all”. We are  asked especially to pray for the climate conferences taking place this autumn.

There are already many imaginative ideas, inspiring initiatives and relevant projects; so if you have any or know of one, do please pass them on to us, so that the PORTICO can share them during this coming month.
